    Posted: 25.Aug.2020 at 00:51
Dear All,
I have used a lisp routine in the past to populate title block sheets on multiple layouts in the one dwg file, by editing an xls file and then creating the csv and then running a lisp.
I have attempted to use a 'Lee Mac" lisp routine however I cannot get it to work. I would like a software program that can be tailored to suit my employers title block.
I would appreciate any software solutions to my problem,
Thank you
JCoward

And which Lee Mac routine might you be referring to?  What error message did you get?

Hey John,
I dont wish to be disparaging toward Lee, he tried to help however my lack of understanding created more problems than it was worth. My errors were not messages, the message was all fields have been populated however there was no change to the title block information. The lisp was 'UpdateTitleblockV1-9' 
I requested a lisp to suit my employer however there has been no response and I have no doubt that is due to his work load.
Therefore I thought a software may be available on the market to help with this issue.
Your thoughts please mate,
Jack

Maybe the problem wasn't with Lee Mac's program but with your attributes.
